Council meetings

Everyone is welcome to attend the 4 weekly Council meetings. Meetings are usually held in the Council Chamber of the Municipal Building in Garden Place.

All Council and committee meetings are open to the public unless there is a reason to consider items in ‘public excluded’. These items are confidential and members of the public will be asked to leave the meeting room until discussion is completed.

Public forums

As per Hamilton City Council's Standing Orders, a period of up to 30 minutes is set aside in each council and committee meeting for a public forum. Each speaker during the public forum section of this meeting may speak for three minutes or longer at the discretion of the Mayor or the relevant Chairperson.

Please note that the public forum is to be confined to those items falling within the terms of the reference of this meeting.

​Speakers will be put on a Public Forum speaking list on a first come first served basis in the Council Chamber or Committee Room prior to the start of the Meeting.  A member of the Council Governance Team will be available to co-ordinate this.  As many speakers as possible will be heard within the allocated time.
 
If you have any questions regarding Public Forum, please contact the Governance Team on 07 838 8625 or email hccdemocracy@hcc.govt.nz
